Macbeth Teams Michael Fassbender And Marion Cotillard


Michael Fassbender Marion Cotillard

In between his high-profile roles in Slow West, Steve Jobs and the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, Michael Fassbender took time out to shoot a gritty new version of Shakespeare's Macbeth with Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel. "While on a big film you've got all the options in the world open to you," he says. "But on a small film even getting it made is a hard thing. I love how fast you have to work - that pressure of having to get it right in one take or not at all."

Fassbender's only previous experience with Shakespeare was in drama school. "Shakespeare is challenging because of the language," he says. "And Macbeth is going through quite a lot!"

Macbeth Review

Good

Shakespeare's Scottish play returns to the big screen with earthy energy, visual style and roaring performances. Acclaimed Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel (Snowtown) takes an artistic approach that makes terrific use of sweeping landscapes and harsh weather, which allows the cast to put their guts into their roles. Yet while the film looks absolutely amazing, the sound mix is so muddled that anyone unfamiliar with the play will find it difficult to follow.

Michael Fassbender plays Macbeth, an 11th century general who has just triumphed on the Highland battlefield but is struggling internally after he and Lady Macbeth (Marion Cotillard) lost their infant child. So when three witches tell him that he is destined to become king, his wife encourages him to make it happen sooner rather than later. In secret, Macbeth murders King Duncan (David Thewlis) and pins the blame on his son Malcolm (Jack Reynor), who flees in fear, raising suspicion. Now on the throne, King and Queen Macbeth are overwhelmed by paranoia about any hint of a threat to their power, raising distrust of loyal friends like Banquo (Paddy Considine) and Duncan's defender Macduff (Sean Harris). Meanwhile, Malcolm has raised an army in England and is coming back to claim his title.

This is one of Shakespeare's bleakest, leanest plays, and Kurzel gives it an intriguingly expansive tone by setting most of the action outdoors in the elements rather than in shadowy castle corridors. In addition to adding a gritty, muddy kick, this allows the battle sequences to take on a Lord of the Rings-scale intensity. So the effect of this violence on the characters is that much more resonant. Lady Macbeth turns inward, tormenting herself in an extended dream sequence, while Macbeth goes the other way, killing anyone who seems even remotely shifty. But of course they also understand that their ambition and guilt are causing these extreme reactions.

Marion Cotillard Claims Feminism Has No Place In The Film Industry


Marion Cotillard

Former Oscar winner Marion Cotillard believes that feminism is not a useful concept in Hollywood, because the term itself creates “separation” between the sexes.

The 39 year old actor, who stars as Lady Macbeth in the forthcoming Shakespeare adaptation, said in a new interview with Porter magazine: “Filmmaking is not about gender. You cannot ask a president in a festival like Cannes to have, like, five movies directed by women and five by men.” This comment was a reference to the 2012 shortlist at the prestigious festival, when all 22 nominated films were directed by men.

Macbeth - Clips


Macbeth is a Scottish Duke who is greeted by three witches following a victorious battle. They reveal to him a prophecy which speaks of him one day becoming King of Scotland, and not only that, but he shall not be killed by any of woman born. Poisoned by greed, he confides in his wife Lady Macbeth, who is equally consumed with fantasies of riches and royalty. She convinces him to kill the current King to gain power and succeeds, though not without a price. From that moment on, this noble man transforms into a tyrant bound by guilt and paranoia and willing to do anything to maintain his throne and keep his dark secret hidden. But the more he tries to find peace within himself, the more danger he is faced with.

Macbeth - Teaser Trailer


After a long, hard battle, a Scottish Thane learns of a prophesy that will change his life forever. Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) is confronted by three witches, who inform him that he shall one day be king, and that no man born by a woman shall ever kill him. When another of their prophecies comes true, he confronts his wife (Marion Cotillard), who convinces him that he must murder King Duncan (David Thewlis). From there, Macbeth falls into the darkest depths of the human soul, as he betrays those he loves for power, and abandons his friends for the love of prophesies.

"The Little Prince" Aims To Preserve Authenticity, But Will It Impress At Cannes?


Jeff Bridges James Franco Marion Cotillard

It was pretty gutsy of American director Mark Osbourne to take on the adaptation of one of the most beloved works of French literature – The Little Prince – and then give it a Cannes premiere.

Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd voices The Prince in the ambitious production.

So maybe it was self-awareness that led Osbourne to employ a slightly different take. The movie is a story within a story, where in which a Little Girl, voiced by Mackenzie Foy (the 10-year old Murph in "Interstellar") is introduced to poet and novelist Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic by an elderly aviator (Jeff Bridges). It echoes the original story, in which an aviator, who crashes in the dessert, forms a friendship with a small boy, the "Little Prince", who says he is from an asteroid and tells the story of his life.

The Little Prince Trailer


A Little Girl's Mother has high expectations of her daughter, given her own career success, and thus takes it upon herself to plan out her entire life, complete with a rigorous study and exercise schedule. The Little Girl agrees to knuckle down at first, but soon finds herself distracted by her peculiar elderly neighbour, The Aviator, who wishes to tell her the story of his encounter with The Little Prince - an other worldly being who lived on an astronaut before landing in the middle of a desert on Earth. The Little Girl is fascinated by the tale, and starts to understand what the most important things are in life, such as friendship. She starts to lament the idea of growing up and the idea of forgetting the significant things she understands as a child; that only the heart can give her a true vision in life.
